footpegs-lightspeed or Fastway

I have an '02 YZ426 that I just converted over to the '03 plastics. I figured I might as well get a set of larger footpegs since I have replaced a ton of other things on the bike.

Wondering what the thoughts are regarding the "best" peg. Obviously bigger is better :ride: but which brand should I be looking at. I am 5'9" and the bike's ergonomics feel good. I plan on sticking with stainless steel since I can't justify spending twice as much for TI.

I like my fastways a whole lot. Off topic, but what was your total cost on the conversion? Do the 426 frame guards work with the 450 subframe? Lets see some pics!

Lightspeed for sure.

I am still getting the bike together but will post pics once it is complete. (Got the hurricane graphics from One Industries-I love the yellow and black!)

I think the frame guards will line up fine. I actually bought carbon fiber guards from Lightspeed for an '03. I may end up selling them because the mounting holes are at a different angle than the '02. I could get it to work but after all the money I just put into the bike I don't want it to be half a$$.

Don't know on the total cost because I haven't sold all of my old stuff yet. I also bought a brand new Clark tank (wanted a black tank) when I could have spent less than half on a used blue tank. I was planning on spending $$ for the graphics kit either way so the shrouds and rear fender were included. I don't think my net cost will be more than a couple hundred after I sell the rest of my old stuff (sub frame, complete rear brakes, maybe all the plastics).

To do work the cost is not too bad I almost broke even since i sold all my old stuff on Flebay,,,,,by the way I have IMS pro stock pegs, tusk makes some nice ones too from rockymountainmc.com

I have been so busy working on the bike I haven't listed the items anywhere yet. I didn't mean to start this thread about the items-but since we are talking about it, I have the sub frame, rear master and rear caliper, rear brake line, complete airbox, all plastics, and a blue tank from a '03-'05 YZ450 (I bought the tank then decided it would be better to buy a black one rather than try to paint a blue one).

I have been running Tusk pegs from Rocky Mountain MC all year long. They are the best pegs by far and they are only 59.95.

My wife has the Fastway pegs and they are impressive.

pivot pegs, night and day difference from static pegs :ride:

My 11.5 feet like the Fastways. I like how I can adjust the grip and angle. They have been holding up great too. Stock style steel foot pegs seem to get bent up to easily.
